Call for expressions of interest in editing a special issue of JNZL

The Journal of New Zealand Literature (JNZL) is calling for expressions of interest in a fully funded special issue for 2018.

  • Proposals must align with JNZL’s mandate to publish peer-reviewed scholarly work on New Zealand literature and cultural studies.
  • Proposals need the majority approval of the JNZL International Advisory Board.
  • The proposer will take responsibility for organising any related conference or symposium and for issuing relevant calls for papers.
  • The proposer will take responsibility for assuring the peer-reviewed quality of the issue, and would be expected to involve the JNZL International Advisory Board in this process. Each submission requires at least two peer reports: at least one from an appropriate peer reviewer in the field, and at least one from a member of the JNZL International Advisory Board. (The editor of JNZL is available to assist with this process.)
  • Once the content of a special issue has been peer reviewed and confirmed, the whole issue will be reviewed by a member of the JNZL International Advisory Board. This is with a view to assuring overall consistency and quality, and is especially important where a guest editor is themselves making a contribution to the issue.
  • Special issues come at no extra cost to subscribers. The 2018 special issue will be fully funded by JNZL’s annual revenue-sharing contribution from JSTOR.
  • Special issues must appear within a calendar year of a proposal’s provisional acceptance by the JNZL International Advisory Board.
  • Fully funded special issues are competitive and advertised internationally.

APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON 31 AUGUST 2017.

Please address all enquiries and applications to the editor of the Journal of New Zealand Literature, Dr Charles Ferrall: jnzl@vuw.ac.nz.
